  • Will the caterer offer taste-testing before hire?
  • Does the caterer offer table settings? Ask about other favors and non food items they may have to offer.



  • Ensure proper licensing, insurance and health department standards of the caterer.
  • Where will the food be prepared? Will there be onsite facilities at your event for the caterer to use?
  • Will your caterer bring their own equipment?
  • Ask about banquet halls, photographers, florists and entertainers they may have to suggest for your event.
  • Does your caterer provide a wait staff? Ask the recommended number of waiters for your particular event and discuss the waiters uniform attire as well.
  • If you would like alcohol served at your event, be sure to discuss with your caterer on matters such as providing a bar and any corkage fees.
